When I just brushed HIM aside
by Mohan M Prasad
(India - Hyderabad)
I rushed to the temple
Knowing it was closing time
There a beggar stopped me, may be for alms
I brushed him aside as quick with my left arm
Well, the temple had closed by then for the day
With a few devotees strolling out making way
I walked slowly out of the temple
And talked silently making conversation with HIM
"I came all the way to seek you
And you had shut the door from me?"
The voice said "I knew you were coming
And even called for you, waiting outside all along"
Suddenly I turned to catch a glimpse of the beggar a few steps down
But then HE had vanished, not to be seen any where around
I said "Sorry to have just brushed you aside"
The voice replied " Just do not worry I am always besides"
